Nothing to see here. Move along.

comment Finding optimal recipe proportions
@Jeremy Your comment makes me wonder whether mathematics can help me here. I had in mind something like a divide-and-conquer algorithm to drive experimentation. Divide-and-conquer would be directly applicable for a two ingredient recipe where the ingredient ratio has some reasonable upper bound. Perhaps there is a distinction between algorithm in the mathematical sense and the computational sense and I'm confounding the two.

@QiaochuYuan Optimal pretty much in the sense that Jeremy inferred. I'm afraid I'm not mathematically savvy enough to see whether that disqualifies my question from being answered here, or in that case, whether there are assumptions that could be made to salvage the question.

@Jeremy It would be individual taste and preference. For simplicities sake I would assume this is unchanging, at least for the individual in question, and it is possible to say from one experiment to the next that one is better or worse than the other.
